An Unexpected Gift!






Hi all!!
Hope you are having a good week.
My back and neck are starting to feel better so that is a good thing.
I got an unexpected package in the mail yesterday from my friend Jean in Rhode Island. Jean went to Brimfield a couple of weeks back, and look what she got for me.
Surprise, a really pretty crown cast out of cement. I think it's awesome!! I love it!
Thank you Jean, you are such a thoughtful friend.
Jean told me in the note, that now I have something from Brimfield. I hope to get there sometime and check it out for myself.
Aren't unexpected presents fun? Along with this crown, I also got two tiny tiles with my initials on them, and 2 pair of vintage rhinestone earrings which I use in my crown making. Now if I could just get Jean on a plane to California for a visit, I would take her to the Rose Bowl. One of us needs to get on a plane, and we both hate to fly. Maybe a train!!
Hope you all have the nicest friends too!!
Have a great weekend!
Chat again soon.
Love,
Rosemary

Good morning dear friend! I love it!!! ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I went to Brimfield once while I lived in Mass., but it was so long ago, we were starving students and we had no funds to have fun....but what a prize you got! HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND and I hope you feel completely 100%! Anita

How beatiful, Rosemary! Love the detail in this crown. What a nice friend Jean is! I hate to fly, too, so I know how you both feel. (Really, I have to take medication, I'm that bad).

That's darling crown, Rosemary. What a sweet thing for Jean to do and that it's a surprise is even better! Yes, one of you does need to get on a plane but I so understand. I have a friend in AZ and that's so close and I haven't made it over to see her for a very long time. I think the longer you wait, the harder it is to fly again.

What a lovely gift! How did you hurt yourself? My neck kills too, so I've had to start lifting weights to strengthen myself. It really helps!
Take care,
